In general most high percentage polyester fabric (80% or higher) socks are sweat wicking. Walmart sells Starter brand which is what I wear but make sure you check the fabric content label since not all of them are high percentage polyester. I cannot speak to women's underwear but the same rule applies to T shirts and shorts. Nylon is non wicking and can get clammy feeling.

It is called WORK-ing out for a reason.
I said getting fit was simple, I did not say it was easy.
Cardio burns calories, strength work burns fat.
Eat well to lose weight, exercise to get fit

I bought a pack of pretty cheap moisture-wicking socks at Target, and I've been perfectly comfortable in them. I second the recommendation for Smartwool socks, too, though, if you want to spend a bit more.

smartwool or injinji socks are nice, and I buy my underwear from the outdoor store.

Can anybody recommend any for women? Mens socks would be fine, too.
I've been looking around and see a very wide array of options at vastly varying price ranges, so I'm not sure what to try first. I want something as moisture wicking as possible, I am SO UNCOMFORTABLE in my normal clothes!
